Parc Guell

Another famous Gaudi installation in Barcelona is Parc Guell found in the north of the city. It’s a tiring trek from the metro station to reach the park, something I couldn’t imagine surviving in the hot summer, but oh so worth it.

The park is like a maze – we may have gotten a bit lost once or twice. But it’s great fun to wander around and examine all the different pieces that give the park its uniqueness.

From the top of the park are fabulous views of the city, the weather when we were there was quite misty, but that did not take away the beauty.

We arrived just as sunset was about to begin – not recommended for the greatest of views but certainly not terrible to see!

Another bonus of our late arrival was that entrance into the main part. which now includes a fee, becomes free after sunset! Hooray for saving money!

I was very excited to hear there was a dragon…turns out it’s a lizard… still a beautiful piece.

 

So Parc Guell: definitely on my list of favourite parks in the world!
